This isn't really much of a screenshot, but it's kind of a big deal for me, since this is my first confirmed kill after not flying for about four years. The combination of rusty flying skills and using much higher difficulty settings than I used to made this a huge challenge. I chased this guy for about 15 minutes, staying right on his tail but never getting good hits until the very end, when I had run out of ammo in my machine guns and had only a few rounds left in the nose cannon. Since the I-16 can easily outclimb the Morane, I almost gave up the chase when he pulled up, but I said the heck with it, yanked the stick back, and got a beautiful shot right into his belly. I was making this face :D for a good five minutes afterward.

Perkele, you commie bastard!

So...Hunter takes off in a 109...and crashes. I try to ram a Stuka after jumping into a Hurri and finding it has no ammunition, the Stuka crashes but I lose a prop and jam the undercarriage up, so I decide to come and visit Hunter :rock:
Hunter does some aerobatics. I repay the favour later whilst he is in a similar hangar warming up his Blennie. :D

Doesn't matter which game, the results are always the same... :dead:


Dowly 01-17-2012 08:10 AM

It's good to be consistent. :O:

Herr-Berbunch 01-17-2012 08:29 AM

I really should, for all these games, RTFM. :roll:

Just another day of doing routine 737-300 operations :D

I too still like to fly FSX:yeah:

As for X-Plane 10, it looks great down to the smallest detail such as the road traffic wil actually drive routs on the road and I think the roads will be modeled after real roads but the cities will all be auto-generated, so not modeled after any city :down:

I am still waiting for more info on MS Flight. That one sounds promising.

Okay, I know this is hugely Off Topic, but I just found this amazing thing on Wikipedia. It's quite large, so I will link it rather than post it as a picture. What is it? Well it's a visual representation of the number of British aircraft used during the big raid on Dresden in 1945. Imagine seeing that in a flight sim one day! :o

Herr-Berbunch 01-19-2012 03:01 PM

Similarly off-topic, at Brize Norton's civvy flying club they have a photo of some 30+ (a guess, it's been a while since I've seen it) Horsa gliders all vying for the same airfield. :o No go-arounds, just land, and if the glider just in front stops quicker than you :doh:

CCIP 01-19-2012 03:17 PM

Not quite that big, but BoB II's major raids can be really breathtaking in scale - we're still talking hundreds of aircraft. And it actually doesn't require a supercomputer to run and looks darn nice :yep:

As far as I know, big raids aren't a 'new' thing either, it's actually that most newer games (like IL-2) have regressed in terms of numbers lately. EAW for example, from what I recall, was also known to have supported massive packages.

The last and desperate fight of German pilots to defend the motherland against the USAAF bombers. So desperate, that even a damaged plane, that has lost a landing gear, has the engine damaged and is leaking fuel rolls towards the combat, ready to fight till the last bullet.

Gorgeous as always Otto.:rock:

TarJak 01-21-2012 07:37 PM

Control, I think I have a problem...

Rainy day in November. The boys on the ground must be really sick of it...
